  • 5. What Is In-Memory Computing?NetBackup for SAP HANA 5The In-Memory Database (IMDB)In-memory computing moves data and information sources fromremote databases into local memory so that results of analyses andtransaction are available immediately• Answer any question immediately– Factor x100.000 faster analytics• Access current and complete information– Real-time access to transactional data• Discover deeper insights– Eliminate aggregation to interrogate granular data• Manage large data volumes cost effectively– Groundbreaking in memory hardware (HW) innovationsSpeedScaleFlexibleGraphic courtesy of IBM

  • 10. Backup for Big DataNetBackup for SAP HANA 10Is it possible?Maybe for some,But not for NetBackup…
  • 11. Backup for SAP HANA• IMDB is sensitive to outages. Data persistence in form ofbackup, high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) is keyto adoption• NetBackup is the only SAP HANA certified backup and recoverysolution• SAP HANA can stream data directly to NetBackup using thebackint process• This integration allows NetBackup to bypass file system backups• Competitors will claim they support SAP HANA backups• SAP “supported” is not the same as SAP certifiedNetBackup for SAP HANA 11Protection for in-memory databases is key
  • 12. Backup for SAP HANA• NetBackup utilizes our modified SAP database agent• The agent resides on the SAP HANA appliance• The SAP HANA management console (HANA Studio) is wherebackups are initiated• NetBackup SAP policy is configured• SAP HANA streams the data to NetBackup based on theconfigured policy• NetBackup manages HANA backup sets to disk, tape, or off-siteNetBackup for SAP HANA 12Where NetBackup meets SAP HANA
  • 13. Backup for SAP HANA• DR solutions and backup solutions address different problems• Over half of IT departments back up all IMDB data, unnecessarily• All backed-up data falls under retention compliancy requirements• Expensive DR is not the answer for every company or every situation• DR replication only addresses certain types of “failures”For complete data protection, you needdisaster recovery + backup,delivered by NetBackupNetBackup for SAP HANA 13Backup and disaster recovery are complementary capabilities
  • 14. What Are the Advantages of Using NetBackup?NetBackup for SAP HANA 14
  • 15. Why NetBackup is an Advantage for HANA backups?NetBackup for SAP HANA 15What value do you lose with non-certified solutions?• SAP customers want SAP certified solutions– Filesystem based backups are not as optimal as a stream based backups• SAP HANA’s catalog is not aware of a filesystem based backup, only streambased backups will be in the SAP HANA catalog (NetBackup is a stream basedbackup)• Recovery to a specific point in time using a filesystem based backup will requiresignificantly more manual effort than a stream based backup that uses backint(NetBackup uses backint)• SAP supported, but not SAP certified (NetBackup is SAP certified)• SAP HANA replication– “Deletions” and “Corruptions” get replicated too; therefore replicationalone does not fully “protect” the SAP HANA data. Complete dataprotection requires a backup

Summary of Advantages• Faster backups through live streaming• Because of the integration, the SAP HANA Studio catalog isalways aware of the backup sets with NetBackup• Non-certified solutions create multi-step processes andcomplexity for recovery• The NetBackup agent for SAP HANA is easy to use and configure• Nothing new for the SAP Admin or Backup Admin to learn• NetBackup offers the benefits of deduplication, encryption,media management, retention management, and off sitereplication with Auto Image Replication (AIR)NetBackup for SAP HANA 17Key takeaways for why NetBackup adds value over competition
